AGENDA Launches New Research Registry Portal

The Autism Science Foundation's Chief Science Officer Dr. Alycia Halladay will be leading the newly-launched Alliance for Genetic Etiologies of Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Autism (AGENDA). This alliance is a partnership of research and advocacy organizations focused on improving outcomes of individuals with all forms of autism by fostering a genetics-first approach to autism science. AGENDA will also work to strengthen collaborations among organizations representing genetically-defined disorders associated with autism. As part of its collaborative activities, AGENDA has launched a new online portal that will make it easier for researchers to investigate different forms of autism. Learn more about the registry  here.
